By Smart Payroll | March 18, 2019

SmartPayroll founder and serial entrepreneur Phil Richards was featured recently in “In the Black” – the magazine of the CPA in Australia.

In it, Richards reflects on the personal characteristics required to successfully launch and grow a business, and why accountants can find this challenging.
He also covers off his five “f”s of personal fulfillment.

The article explores what Richards sees as the secret to success – whether that be in business, or in life: “goal setting and planning, passion, determination and persistence. With the hard work comes achievement and reward, a sense of accomplishment and feeling good about myself”.

He also discusses his soon-to-be-released book entitled “The Entrepreneurial Accountant” including a framework for how accountants should approach their clients’ businesses, as well as their own.
